Yokohama Race day treat for Pellon Tyres
One the good things about dealing direct with the tyre manufacturers, is that from time to time we get a special treat, some sort of day out for the boss (usually a visit to their tyre factory) or one of his key staff members, in this case Ryan Linton.
Last year we decided to join an independent group of tyre buyers known as Point-S. This enabled Point-S to build up a Nationwide Dealer set up, that enabled small town tyre dealers like, ourselves in Halifax UK to buy direct from the tyre manufactures, who previously were not interested in selling their products to individual tyre dealers, such as ourselves.
This was a great opportunity for my business, and we are now forming relationships with some of the Worlds top tyre companies. One of them is Yokohama from Japan, one of the Worlds finest tyre producers. The tyres that they make are second to none for there quality and durability, and as I say we are now very proud to be the Yokohama Tyre dealers for the Calderdale area including Halifax here in the UK.
We were over the moon when we recently received an invitation to a Yokohama Race day, to attend a race day that they had organised at the renowned Bedford Autodrome, courtesy of Palmer-sport.com. This was a great treat for us ,but unfortunately the boss Eric Roberts was feeling unwell, (and he can’t drive fast anyway) so his place was taken by his chief mechanic Ryan Linton.
I am sure that Eric will admit that he is a little old for driving racing cars and Ryan was the best choice anyway, Ryan has a great love and knowledge of all types of cars and loved the total experience from his day out with Yokohama Race day at Palmer-sports race day.
Yokohama tyres recorded the full day
We were also fortunate to have the full experience photographed and put on the their website, so that we can download some pictures of the day out. I would like to thank Yokohama Race day and Palmer-Sport from Ryan and myself for such a great day out (the weather was great too).
Some of the cars that Ryan raced were Land-Rover defender, Formula Jaguar, Caterham 7 and Ariel atom 3, all of which can be seen on their web-site…http://www.palmersport.com/
